Light gray-green figured, striped cotton sateen men’s vest, solid matching cotton sateen vest back with belt and antique silver metal buckle. 6 mother of pearl buttons, 4 pockets.

I acquired this vest 25 years ago when I was just starting out as a designer and have a fair collection of them. This one is small, measuring only 33 inches for the chest, so it would fit, in today’s world, a woman or teen boy, so I am wishing it well and a new owner. I never used it, and have kept it clean and stored in a box away from dust and other intruders.

I am not sure if this is an actual antique or a theatrical costume vest made for a show back in the day. It looks like something a young (leading man) would wear; 40-50 years ago, leading men did exist with 33 inch chests, but not today. The buttons do not look antique to me; they could have been replaced at some point.

The fabric is a lovely cotton sateen with self-striping and designs, accented by small black dots; subtle and rich. The lining and back vest fabric is a matching solid cotton sateen, and the whole garment is in excellent, mint condition, save from some yellowing here and there.

Measurements:

Stripes are 3/8 inch wide
Chest: 33 inches
Waist: 31 inches
Front length: 21.5 inches

Please make sure that this will fit; antique clothing is not returnable.
